    We'll see. Time will tell. What's going to be your excuse if things don't go your way?

The Republican Senators are those who support Walker, the the Democrats being targeted are among those who walked out. So, in a sense, you can say that the recall petition drives are a bi-partisan effort being carried out by partisans...... huh?

    The bar for conducting a recall in Wisconsin is high. The petitioners have only 60 days to obtain 25% of the total number of votes cast in the last gubernatorial race in each particular district where a recall is being attempted. After only a couple of days, 25% of the required number have been collected against one Republican, and 20% against another Republican. No numbers have been posted yet for the other Republicans, or for the Democrats, but the Democratic party is claiming that they have already reached 15% of their total goal, and say that efforts against all 8 of the Republicans being challenged are going to be successful.

    Which brings me to the moral of this story. If you are elected, do what the people put you into office to do. If you overstep your authority, it is at your own peril. Walker had a mandate for fiscal responsibility, which I totally agree with. However, with the help of the infamous Koch Brothers, he turned that into waging a war on the collective bargaining rights of state employees, something that Wisconsin's population is overwhelmingly against. His transparent lies that busting the unions in Wisconsin was really about addressing the debt didn't fly with Wisconsinites either, who saw through his deception. He is now going to pay the ultimate political price, which will be the death of his political career. He can't blame the voters for that. He can only blame himself, and his radical agenda.

    Oh sure, fire the guys who were at work, doing their job, and give a pass to the ones who played hookie for 3 weeks.

    Is a "snake" that has had its fangs removed and LEFT (pun intended) with only an ARTIFICIAL warning rattle really of any consequence? Laugh My Ass Off. This is all the FLAT NOSE, NO NECKS have left....fear and intimidation tactics but in this case the BEAST has had its FANGS PULLED and HYPERBOLE is the order of the day, but its very entertaining. Game over, as the RABBIT sits in its den smoking PEACEFULLY on his pipe...why? Because he is the more intelligent of the two.....the PREDATOR has simply been out maneuvered because of his INFERIOR INTELLIGENCE. The pray is no longer fearful. Example? In other words WE THE PEOPLE says, "Its our country.....SCREW OFF, or get STEPPED ON".
